Colbert, Fallon and Conan O'Brien team up on Trump

Colbert, Fallon and Conan O'Brien team up on Trump

The hosts of America's popular late-night talk shows have put on a rare united front in response to criticism from President Donald Trump.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien presented a united front on Tuesday night to have some fun on a video conference following Trump's insults at a SC rally on Monday.

"I$3 heard he said some pretty bad stuff about us", Fallon told Colbert about Trump's SC rally. "I heard he said we're all no-talent, lowlife lost souls", Fallon says. Colbert responds, "Hey, lost soul".

"I'm busy having 'no talent, '" Colbert joked, quoting Trump, though the two claimed in the skit they hadn't watched the rally.

The nicknames are a reference to Trump, who called Fallon a "lost soul" and Colbert a "lowlife" and "this guy on CBS" during a rally in SC on Wednesday.

The Late Show host then adds Conan O'Brien to the call.

"Red Hen?" Fallon responded, referring to the restaurant that last week asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave.

'Honestly are these people amusing? Trump tweeted, to which Fallon responded on his show, "shouldn't he have more important things to do?" After the audience went insane over their exchange, Fallon asked Stephen what he was up to, and Stephen answered, "I'm busy having no talent".

After trading remarks on Trump's latest late night insults, Colbert and Fallon loop O'Brien into this cross-network collaboration. "So Melania, if you're watching, I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working". Fallon and Colbert then discussed lunch plans.

It all started with Colbert at his desk, finishing the writing of his monologue when Fallon of "The Tonight Show" called him. Instead, he commented on Trump saying people should "toot their own horns".
